    What is glycyrrhetinic acid?

    Licorice (Glycyrrhize glabra L.) is a common medicinal and edible food. Licorice extract is widely used in candies and canned foods as a natural sweetener. The sweet taste of licorice comes from glycyrrhizic acid and glycyrrhetinic acid. The former is a type of triterpenoid saponin, accounting for about 4% to 5% of the dry weight of licorice root. Its sweetness is 50 times that of sucrose. Glycyrrhetinic acid is formed by hydrolyzing the sugar acid chain of glycyrrhizic acid, and its sweetness is sucrose. 250 times.

    What are the benefits

    Anti-allergic and soothing effect
    Glycyrrhetinic acid is similar in structure to hydrocortisone. A large number of clinical trials have confirmed that it has good anti-inflammatory effects. It can effectively inhibit the production of prostaglandin PGE2 in inflammatory tissues and antagonize inflammatory mediators such as histamine.
    Glycyrrhetinic acid can directly bind to phospholipase A2, the initiating enzyme of the arachidonic acid metabolic pathway, and to lipoxygenase that acts on arachidonic acid to produce inflammatory mediators, selectively blocking the activation of these enzymes. Phosphorylation inhibits its activation.

    Antibacterial effect
    Glycyrrhetinic acid has strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects and can inhibit the permeability of capillaries. When used in lipstick, it can prevent the rupture of brittle lips. It is also commonly used to treat mucosal diseases and can be used in oral hygiene products to prevent dental caries and mouth ulcers.

    Auxiliary whitening effect
    Glycyrrhetinic acid can inhibit the permeability of capillaries and has a good therapeutic effect on red blood cells and hormone dependence. It can effectively prevent stains caused by pigmentation caused by inflammation, eliminate micro-inflammation on the skin surface, and quickly improve skin quality. Brightens skin tone.

    Hormone-like effects
    Glycyrrhetinic acid itself has a similar structure to steroid hormones, so it can exert glucocorticoid effects in the body.
    Glycyrrhetinic acid has the effect of activating hormone receptors and enhancing the effects of its own hormones or hormones given by drug pathways, also known as glucocorticoid effect. Its structure is different from that of steroid hormones, so there are no adverse reactions and side effects of hormones.
    Due to the above effects, glycyrrhetinic acid is often added to fat-soluble skin care products to play a whitening role.
